There are a large number of providers in Australia so it is important to do your research and find the one that fits YOUR needs. Ensure you that you only study through a Registered Training Provider. It may also be useful to speak with local practices and find out whether they recommend a particular provider.
The list of Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) in Australia providing vet nurse training is growing. Many of the RTOs deliver flexible and distance education, so it may be sensible for you to contact those that are interstate too. You may find that the delivery methods of one RTO suit your circumstances better than another. Employment in a veterinary practice is difficult to come by, and most students are required to spend a lot of time communicating with practices and establishing a relationship. This may be how weekend and voluntary work experience can be achieved.
